It’s safe to say that Tottenham Hotspur fans have enjoyed Guglielmo Vicario’s start to life in North London, and the keeper has revealed the feeling is very much mutual.

After witnessing Hugo Lloris take a sharp downturn in form last season, it was obvious Tottenham needed a new number-one goalkeeper this year. After a relatively short search, Guglielmo Vicario was selected as the man to replace the former Spurs skipper.

The Italian has quickly proven that Tottenham made the right choice, with Vicario being one of the star performers under Ange Postecoglou so far. Even in the recent defeats, the 27-year-old has been outstanding, particularly in the chaotic game against Chelsea at the start of November.

It’s hard to imagine life without Vicario now, and the fact that Postecoglou has added the keeper to his leadership group should tell you everything you need to know about the way Vicario has settled in and carried himself since arriving in N17.

Vicario thanks his teammates for a warm welcome

Now, the man himself has spoken on his early experiences at the club. In a video shared on the club’s Twitter account, Vicario said: “I have to be thankful to all the Tottenham environment, to all my teammates, to my coach, and to everyone here who is close to Spurs.

“My integration was great, since day one. The most important thing is to feel good in the dressing room, with your teammates, so I have to be thankful to them because they make it easy for me. Since day one, it was easy, like we knew each other for a long time.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I have been very impressed by how quickly Vicario has settled in and established himself as one of the most competent keepers in the league. He seems to have great authority about him and clearly has the respect of his peers, which is really important for a player in his position.
